Ann for My Nearest and Dearest and I  have been brainstorming for several weeks to put together Sensory Sink Sunday.  Today I am thrilled to finally be able to share with you what we came up with for week one.  This weeks theme is cooking and baking in the sink.  I took the cooking sensory sink while My Nearest and Dearest has taken the baking sensory sink. Make sure to stop over to see what fun they had with  their baking sensory sink. I had so much fun putting this together for my son and he had even more fun playing in it.  I love watching him play and learn all at the same time.
 

 
What I used: 
 
play dishes, pans & pots, spoons, kitchen spices, chicken cube, pretend food, real dry noodles, a funnel, 2 yellow foam circles ( as a stove top to cook on) and apron.  I made a quick sign with paper and markers.
Here is our Chicken Noodle Soup Sensory Sink Play:

What I did: I always like to gather all the items I will need for a project before getting the kids.  It doesn’t always work out that way.  This day daddy was home so it was great.  I got everything together before the kids came to see the sensory sink.  I placed all my items around the sink.  I taped the foam stove tops down to the side of the sink as a cooking area.

Now it was time for my son 4yr to come in and have a fun sensory sink experience.   He was over joyed with all the items he saw.  He could not wait to start adding water to the pots and sink.  He added spices and noodles to his pan.  He was having so much fun cooking.

Working on his motor skills by pouring the water back and forth in the bowls.  Learning a life lesson on how to cook.  Exploring all his senses except taste.  Even though it was safe to take a little taste he never did.  He sure wanted mommy to taste his chicken noodle soup he made but I laughed as he did and politely said no thanks.  Little brother 2yr was still outside with daddy but he did get to come in and play in the sink too.  He thought it was just as much fun as big brother.  They got to be master chefs together.  They cooked daddy up some chicken noodle soup.  I love when we play as a family.   The kids did get some water on the floor when little brother came in but I had a few beach towels on the floor to help soak up the spills and splashes.  Clean up was easy.  Just wipe up water and rinse out dishes.  I left the dishes over night to dry and put them up the next  day.
